We still like picnics

Spring has finally arrived! Actually, today even feels a bit more like summer and the pools are already up and warming in the bright sunshine.

We have also started to picnic again--one of my favorite summer past times.
I don't plan on posting pics of every picnic we take this year, nor do I plan on counting them, as we have done in the past.
But, since it's just the start and has so far been mostly Marshall and I, I wanted to share some of our "first" picnic pictures with you.

Indoor picnic at Edinborough Park on May 13th

MN Zoo on May 18th

Picnic on the deck at our house on May 20th.

Front yard on May 22

On the deck on May 28

Picnic at Dakota Estates Park in Farmington today, May 29.


I know we also ate dinner outside on Friday, May 23, to kick off the holiday weekend.
I love eating outside with the warm sunshine and warm winds. I also love not having to sweep the kitchen floor or wipe down the table when we are done ;)

Here are a couple other fun pictures from the past few weeks.

Logan's last track meet (he's in red).

Chef Marshall making M&M cookies to share with friends.

Logan receiving his track award.

Life at our House

Our family is in the process of dealing with change. Most of the time I resist change, but I am trying hard to embrace the changes ahead.
One change that I am having no trouble embracing at all is the change of the seasons and the warmer weather. Although it has been slow, I just can't get enough of the warm sunshine!!

Here is a peak at what life has been like at our house over the past couple of weeks...

Brady, at his 3rd track meet (with coach Daddy in the background).

Logan at his "Grand Day" celebration for Grandparents at school.

Brady, at the Farmington Art Show (his work was chosen to be on display!).

Marshall, practicing fine motor and color skills with cotton balls and a clothes pin.

Cup stacking

Practicing more fine motor skills using marbles.


Logan is also participating in track and field this year, although I have yet to get a good picture of him. Hopefully it will be warmer out this weekend, so I can take my hand out of my pocket to snap one :).
